Lowris – Le Turfu EP [Castanea Records]
Immersed in the environment of electronic music since his teenage years, Lowris is a young self-made man. This sound engineer evolved from being a simple producer to a talented label owner.
As a resident Dj at CONCRETE in Paris, he shared the decks with many artists like Rhadoo, Raresh, Cabanne, Baby Ford, Sammy Dee, Onur Özer, Moomin, Sonja Moonear, Ricardo Villalobos, Akufen, Bihn and many others. He pays a particular attention to his musical selections, always digging for new and old records. A producer also, with years of experience in sound design and composition, he released with labels like Minibar, Concealed Sounds, Nervmusic and his own Crazyjack Records & Æternum Music.
Castanea Records is a minimal techno music record label based in Italy, founded in 2014 and focusing on releasing vinyl only masterpieces. None of their releases are officially available online in any digital format. Having names like Yaroslav Lenzyak, Andrey Zots, duo Alka_Rex and our local hero Nu Zau among the ones who enjoyed working with the label, its eight release features french Dj and producer Loris Pugnet a.k.a. Lowris.
Le Turfu EP includes two original tracks and a solid remix by the eclectic romanian duo SIT.
Opening the EP we find the original take of “Evan“, a multi-layered sequence of wobbly synths, syncopated drumming and glitched effects, all enveloped under a subtle, yet radiant humming of delayed voice samples that gives a foggy and mysterious feeling to the track. The Remix provided by Cristi Cons and Vlad Caia a.k.a. SIT takes this feeling and builds on it, the rhythm picking up a more steady pace and developing into a tornado of sounds, where whispered voices morph into the punchy percussion creating an elegant flow.
In contrast, “3Xwell” doesn’t incorporate as many layers of sound as the other two tracks, the removal of complex atmospheric pads creating a catchy balanced and relaxed track, that delivers a state of chilled contemplation.
